I've never had an issue with the init.m file I have in the
directory returned by

ToFileName[{$UserBaseDirectory, "Kernel"}]

getting lost or overwritten when updating to a new Mathematica
version. The only thing I've needed to do is edit this file so
that older commands incompatible in someway with the newer
version don't get executed.
